The United States has won a fourth gold medal at the International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) Shotgun World Cup in Lima while Italy also tasted victory on the penultimate day of competition.

Quadruple world champion Caitlin Connor led the US to glory in the women's skeet team tournament alongside Austen Jewell Smith and Dania Jo Vizzi.

The trio had 100 per cent accuracy across the first two rounds of four shots each to help them establish a healthy lead against Italy going into the decider.

Although Connor missed her final effort, her compatriots shot clean to overcome Katiscia Spada, Francesca Del Prete, and Simona Scocchetti.

The result secured their place atop the overall standings on four gold medals, with Italy and Spain on two each, as only one more is set to be awarded.

The US also triumphed in the men's trap team, women's trap team, and the women's individual skeet in the Peruvian capital.

Italy won the only other gold on offer as Domenico Simeone, Marco Sablone, and Cristian Ciccotti combined to beat Puerto Rico 6-4 in the men's team skeet.

The two countries were the only competitors in the discipline which meant that no bronze medal was awarded.

Miguel Pizarro, Jesus Medero, and Luis Bermudez only faltered twice on the opening round to take maximum points but from then on, they were unable to win a single stage.

Despite the loss, it was still Puerto Rico's best finish at the event.

Peru claimed the bronze medal with a 6-4 win over Argentina.

Flavo Artoni was instrumental for the hosts, missing just two out of his 20 shots.

The action concludes tomorrow with the mixed skeet team gold and bronze medal matches.
